Rock could have broken kayfabe by saying how Punk failed to revolutionise the business because he is the worst drawing champion in 17 years but there is no need for that.
Pretty much this. While i wasnt impresed too much by Rock's promo, IMO that was the best part of the promo. Not the Nas " your arms too short to box with God, i dont kill soloiss,t i only kill squads" line. From your da man on the Stillmatic LP. It had a deeper meaning. It meant that despite Punk being the anti hero and despite him wanting to bring about change in the E and all of this, he simply could not get it done. He was impotent. To me that hits much deeper than a ridiculous line like what Punk said.Punk's line felt as cheesy as cookiepuss. It was so over the top, it just wasnt believable. But Rock did get in that on deep jab on a personal level. While Punk just said he was gonn beat the Rock for the 127683th time with his stuff. Like i said, loved Punk's intensity, but he came across as delusional and insecure and he didnt really have a personal jab at the Rock just im so different, you fans suck, im breaking the 4th wall. Nothing really hit hard for me. Rock had that one good jab at the very least, but still they can both do better.
